Playing With The Idea of Capsule Wardrobe

I’ve been seeing the term Capsule Wardrobe thrown around quite a bit. Initially, I wasn’t curious enough to find out what it really is, but now that I know, I am tempted to try it. I am no longer working, and as a stay at home mom, I find that I’ve been reaching only for that few pieces. I have plenty of clothes, but I find that I want something that’s easy to wear, and one that would endure pulling and excessive tugging without plopping out one boob or just showing my entire bra to everyone (Ashton is strong!). So I’ve been reaching for that few t-shirts and jeans. And I look BORING!! I want something that meet the criteria mentioned just now yet still look fashionable (or at least presentable) and, I want to keep it minimal. There are plenty of clothes I don’t wear anymore, and it’s high time I got rid of them. Hence the idea of…

I landed on Un-Fancy one day, and she’s totally my style. I think Caroline is taking a blog break for a few months, but her content is still inspiring to read. The ever lovely Jen from Procrastinating Pretty also has her own capsule wardrobe, and her fancy video editing style makes her already chic wardrobe even more desirable. I mean, about 38 pieces of clothing + shoes for a few months look sustainable. It’s even easier for me because I live in the tropics. No weather change, so I don’t even need to change my capsule every 3 months. I’ve already been getting rid of clothes I don’t wear in batches, because it’s overwhelming to take ALL OF THEM OUT at the same time (which is required in this process). So, I figured, once I get my shite down to a more manageable level, I’ll start organizing my clothes, picking out clothes I love, like, can’t wear it now, wear it later, and just never wear. Something like that. I need to read my notes again.

If I decide to embark on this journey, would you want to be included in the process and updates? I don’t dare to throw in how I style because I’m just not that fashionable 😉
